Remember those creamy frozen fudge pops of your childhood? Consider a nutritious twist: This frozen dream is equally fudgy (thanks to the ripe bananas) and naturally sweetened with dates. Plus, adding collagen to these fudge ice pops can make for a nutrient-packed, sweet treat in the summertime.

Not to mention, supplementing with collagen has some pretty promising beauty benefits: Studies have shown that hydrolyzed collagen powder can promote strong nails1, skin firmness, and moisture levels2.* mbg's beauty & gut chocolate collagen+ has additional good-for-you ingredients, like vitamin C, vitamin E, biotin, SGS, turmeric, L-glutamine, and hyaluronic acid, to further support skin health.*

And what makes these options so refreshingly (yet subtly!) sweet is the collagen powder's organic cocoa and organic monk fruit. This better-for-you blend makes for the ultimate inside-out support with zero sugar and no unpleasant aftertaste.*

Serve up these fudge pops as you bask in the sunshine this long weekend—you'll have a decadent, refreshing treat the whole family will love. 

Chocolate Collagen Fudge Ice Pop

Ingredients

  • 2 large ripe bananas (make sure your bananas are really brown on the outside and mushy—that will bring out the sweetness!)
  • 2 cups milk (I like to use oat milk, but you can use almond, coconut, cow's, etc.) 
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (can adjust this depending on taste preferences)
  • 1 scoop mbg's beauty & gut chocolate collagen+
  • 1 to 2 dates (for a sweeter ice pop!)
